One of the most popular romantic stories and greatest tearjerkers in manga history, Your Lie in April - The Musical brings to life the poignant story of Kōsei and his inability to play following his mother's death. He strikes a friendship with violinist Kaori and she slowly encourages him to perform again.

The romantic drama has previously been adapted into a 22-part anime television series and a live-action film. Now get ready to experience the magic of ‘Your Lie in April' in a whole new dimension... on the stage!

Your Lie in April - The Musical has music by multi-Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award nominated Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn (Bonnie & Clyde, Jekyll & Hyde, Death Note The Musical).

Speaking about Your Lie In April the Musical, Frank Wildhorn says: “Your Lie In April is a love letter to music. It's about having the power to heal, to create memories, to bring us together, to inspire. And to be a beautiful bridge between this world and the next. I'm thrilled for West End audiences to hear the English language debut.”
